For entry a passport is required which is valid for 3 months after the date of departure from Cyprus. A return ticket is usually required for entry although proof of sufficient funds may suffice. It is advisable to contact the local consulate before travelling to verify these restrictions. Visas are not required by EU or USA nationals for tourist visits of up to 30 days. If you wish to stay longer or intend to work whilst you are in Cyprus you should contact the local Cypriote consulate.
